Luigi Porcino on SoundBetter

Not the same clichés again and again, but unique productions that sound great! I am Luigi, aka disquette•s, a music producer/beatmaker and DJ based in Italy. I have been producing electronic music for over 15 years.

You can't help but feel nostalgic for the 80s. Maybe it's because you're a millennial who grew up with the internet. Maybe it's because of all the reboots and revivals in music, movies, and TV. Or maybe it's just a part of your DNA that you can't shake no matter how hard you try.

We all love the catchy sound of New Wave, Synth-pop and Italo-disco that has been making a comeback in recent years. I can bring these sounds and 80's aesthetics back to your project or I can produce a catchy original track.

My music is into Retrowave, Synthwave, Dreamwave, Popwave, Chillwave, Nu-Disco and Synth-pop subgenres.

    Luigi has vibe and style for days. I just had the pleasure of working with him on a remix for my single, "Billy Electric". He was able to breath new, infectious life into it. I can't wait to perform his remix of this song on stage. It will lead to dancing I'm quite sure. Aside from the quality and fab style of the remix itself, Luigi is a fantastic communicator and was punctual with the deadlines he mentioned. Highly recommend working with him in any capacity if you get the chance!

    Not only is Luigi really good at what he does...he's also got great ears and does not let a good hook get past him. Luigi's a delight to collaborate with! He listens to your ideas, asks relevant questions, and gets back to you with a great remix that beautifully reflects your input. Thanks so much!
